Birth: Sep. 7, 1854
Death: Jul. 14, 1915

"Levi Rogers, last of two children of Gideon and Mary Ann (Snyder) Rogers, member of the Church of the Brethren, was born near Alum Bank, Bedford Co, Pa, September 7, 1854. His father was a bishop and imparted the spirit of service in his son. Few educational advantages were available, but the son was a strong advocate of education through his mature years.
He was united in marriage with Jane Smith, the union being solemnized by John S, Holsinger, Sept. 9, 1875. To this union five children were born, but one son, Sewell, surviving. He again was united in marriage, this time with Catherine, daughter of Michael Walter, John S. Holsinger again officiating. To this union four children were born: Elizabeth (deceased), Walter (deceased), George W., and John I.
He united with the Church of the Brethren, in the Dunnings Creek congregation, in 1875, Brice Sell administering baptism. This congregation called him to the ministry, June 13. 1885: and had him ordained, on October 15, 1901. From Oct. 27, 1912, the date of the death of John B. Miller, had had the oversight of the Dunnings Creek congregation until his death.
